IN NEWS: Paul Kagame, President of the Republic of Rwanda, spoke at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy yesterday, marking the 20th anniversary of the genocide against the Tutsis.

IN FEATURES: Campus Sustainability Council report discusses recent developments and growth in four areas of sustainability on campus — including waste, water, and energy and emissions — and includes the next steps that the university plans to meet its goals in regards to each.

IN ARTS: The Shops at Porter are a cornucopia of great Asian cuisine, the best of which is Tampopo. The cozy restaurant — which on a good day seats 14 people — is a perfect spot for eating with just one other person.

TODAY’S EDITORIAL: Rwandan President Paul Kagame visited Tufts yesterday to give a speech to students and guests on his country’s recovery from genocide, ethnic tensions and its future. The lecture was so popular that tickets for the event were gone within an hour of their public release. While Jumbos should feel lucky that the university continues to bring in elite speakers, thinkers and media figures, it’s important to remain aware of Rwanda’s full story.

IN SPORTS: One of the hallmarks of a good team is the ability to win games that are supposed to be won. This weekend, the softball team did just that, outscoring a last-place Bates squad 32-2 in three games.
